My Evening With Marilyn

| January 26, 2012 | Parties

THE PARTY Art book publisher Taschen launched its latest collector’s edition, Norman Mailer, Bert Stern: Marilyn Monroe, at the Hotel Bel-Air, bringing Stern back to the location where his famous photo shoot with the actress took place. THE PLAYERS Bert Stern, Quincy Jones, Chris Tucker, Josh Baker, Nina Wiener THE HIGHLIGHTS One almost expected women in the room to spontaneously disrobe when they spied the legendary photographer in their midst. Clothes stayed on, but some guests paid homage by wearing a color-blocked scarf similar to the one Monroe used for Stern’s lenses. Photos by Stefanie Keenan
